CM Assam Sarma said ‘Kerala Story’ not against any community

Guwahati: Banning the film ‘Kerala Story’ will serve no purpose as the film is not against any community but against terrorism, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

Sarma watched the movie at a multiplex in Guwahati with her family members and cabinet colleagues.
“I don’t know what is happening in West Bengal but banning the film will serve no purpose,” Sarma told reporters.

The West Bengal government has banned the screening of the film in the state, saying it could cause law and order problems.
“The film depicts a conspiracy against innocent girls, including girls from the Muslim community. So, the decision to ban the film, in my opinion, is wrong,” he said.
“They have banned the film because they are under the impression that it is against the Muslim community but it is not true. They should have seen the film before banning it. Then, they would have understood the film’s content. It has nothing to do with religion,” he said.

The Chief Minister said that the film exposes the “brutal ambitions of terrorist organizations in the name of religion”.
Sarma appealed to the people of Assam to watch the film with their families, especially girls. He also urged parents to keep an eye on their children and those they befriend.
He thanked the producer, director and cast of the film for presenting a film on such an important issue.

Controversy surrounding the Sudipto Sen-directed Hindi film ‘The Kerala Story’ erupted when the makers released the trailer, which claimed that 32,000 girls from Kerala had gone missing and joined the terrorist organization ISIS.
